Life confounds

What is it with life
it has ups and downs
pleasure , pain, joy
and heartbreak
do the rounds

Would that our lives
could, just be pleasure
No pain or woe
for us to measure.

Why is it, things
go so wrong
bad things happen
regardless just be strong

How do I deal
with the days
that are black
when the roof
caves in
the cheque
bounces back

I have to dig deep
in my reserve
in my internal resevoir
my beliefs must serve

What is it with life
it has ups and downs
pleasure, pain, joy
and heartbreak
life can confound

Ups and Downs

What is it with life

 it has ups and downs

Pleasure and pain

 Joy and heartbreak

do the rounds

Would that our lives

 could, just be pleasure

No pain or woe 

for us to measure.
Why is it, things

 go so wrong?

Bad things happen 

not like in songs

How do I deal 

with the days

 that are black

When the roof 

caves in

The cheque

bounces back

I have to dig

in deep

To my reserves 

my internal resevoir. 

What is it with life

 it has ups and downs

Pleasure and pain

 joy and heartbreak

do the rounds.

Seasons

As we walk life’s tortuous paths 

we encounter  seasons 

as life rolls past

Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter

pass with certitude

 a familiar refrain

weather patterns change to

unexpected patterns

less no snow more rain

making the season harder

to explain

As we walk life’s tortuous paths 

our lives are like  seasons 

Winter may seem to set in, to blight 

spring,summer or autumn when dreams are dashed

and life seems cold and bleak

when setbacks lash

a chill cold wind  blows, hunches shoulders

when desolation becomes the norm

and the path is strewn with boulders

then winter chill seems set to last

a whole eternity

but seasons turn

springs hope of new life

the abundance of summer

the colours of autumn

and winter too has a beauty

As we walk life’s tortuous paths 

we encounter  seasons 

each has its own beauty
